Temporary support of motorway bridge in disrepair
The D1 stretches eastwards from Prague via Brno and on to Poland. With a length of 375 km, it is the longest but also the oldest motorway in the Czech Republic. Construction was started 75 years ago and, accordingly, some sections are in urgent need of refurbishment. In order to safely maintain road traffic operations, a motorway bridge which had fallen into disrepair 30 km southeast of Prague had to be temporarily supported up to the time of the planned new construction. The 90 m long structure was built in the 1970s using prefabricated components.

With the VARIOKIT heavy-duty shoring towers, we were able to quickly and accurately carry out all site-related height adjustments. In addition, activation of the support by means of hydraulically-operated head spindles was extremely simple.
